Church leaders from around the world have drawn up a new set of the Ten Commandments aimed at delivering “God bloggers” from the temptations of the blogosphere.
Alarmed by the extent to which religious blogs can descend into vitriol, senior evangelical clergy are calling on bloggers to obey the new commandments or risk perdition.
The commandments, based on the original ones delivered to Moses by God Himself at the top of Mount Sinai, were drawn up at a “Godblogs” conference in Kennington, southeast London.
With no further ado, here they are.
1. You shall not put your blog before your integrity
2. You shall not make an idol of your blog
3. You shall not misuse your screen name by using your anonymity to sin
4. Remember the Sabbath day by taking one day off a week from your blog
5. Honor your fellow-bloggers above yourselves and do not give undue significance to their mistakes
6. You shall not murder someone else’s honor, reputation or feelings
7. You shall not use the web to commit or permit adultery in your mind
8. You shall not steal another person’s content
9. You shall not give false testimony against your fellow-blogger
10. You shall not covet your neighbor’s blog ranking. Be content with your own content
This story does has its humorous side but in all seriousness, these are also good rules and morals to follow when running a Christian or religious-related blog.
